Leicester Square Hotels - London

Mini guide to Leicester Square


Leicester Square is the centre of entertainment in London, with many theatres, cinemas, clubs and arcades. Nightlife is the key here, with lots of bars and restaurants to cater to every taste. It's also a two-minute stroll through the crowds to Piccadilly Circus.

Right behind Leicester Square is Chinatown packed with restaurants of every category, from hole-in-the-wall to super elegant. Here you can get a quick bowl of noodles, great dim sum on weekends or a luxury full-course Chinese meal.

Stringfellows, a celebrity-spotting nightclub, is nearby, while the riff;raff can slum it in one of the many touristy discos off the square. For cheaper entertainment still, hang around and listen to the numerous talented buskers playing 'the square'.

Going to a theatre is a must here, especially with the wide selection of mainstream and non-mainstream productions available. Known as 'The West End', the area dissected by Shaftsbury Avenue is full of theatres putting on famous productions. The best place to get tickets is at the Half Price Ticket Booth in Leicester Square. Here tickets are sold at discounts for performances on the same day. Another well entrenched establishment is the cheap Prince Charles theatre off the square, showing re-runs of classic movies and the traditional Friday Midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show (fancy dress encouraged).

Charing Cross Road, right off Leicester Square, has the best selection of bookstores in London. There are many small, specialist bookshops, from dusty second hand places to Foyles, possibly the largest and worst organized bookshop in the world!

Although it's not packed with places to stay, you can't get more central than Leicester Square. Main access is by Leicester Square station on both the Northern and Piccadilly lines. There are also numerous bus options from this central area and taxis are numerous.
